* Double-subverted in ''YuYuHakusho''. When Sensui takes off his shirt after [[ItMakesSenseInContext falling into the lake]], the first thing the heroes notice about him are his [[GoodScarsEvilScars scars that criss-cross his whole body]]. They assume at first that it was from all of the demons he had to fight when he was younger; however, it's revealed that he got all those scars ''training himself''. Yusuke lampshades it in the dub:

* In ''TabletopGame/RocketAge'' the initiation rituals to join the Cult of the Fanged Mother, a Venusian murder cult, involves both murder and extensive self mutilation. The women's path up the cult's ranks is far worse, involving even more self harm and psychological torment.

* Overlapping with Video Games: some funny person made a console called [[NoCelebritiesWereHarmed PainStation]]. It was a Pong-style game operated by moving your palm across flat table... which hurt you by electric shock or burn when you lost a point. Reportedly, on a certain video game convention, people were seen leaving the game only after their hands were bleeding. (Shocks and burns damage skin. Damaged skin cracks, causing leaks and bleeding.)

* Overlapping with Video Games: some funny person made a console called [[NoCelebritiesWereHarmed PainStation]]. It was a Pong-style game operated by moving holding two buttons with your palm across flat table... left hand and operating the paddle with the right. The game can go to eleven points but not holding down the two buttons causes a meter to deplete which hurt also determines if you by lose. When the ball gets past your paddle and hits the popup hazards, you get an electric shock shock, have your hand warmed/burned or burn even have the hand ''whipped''. Any place that has this game posts a lot of health advisories and disclaimers when you lost a point. Reportedly, on a certain video game convention, people were seen leaving the game only after their hands were bleeding. (Shocks and burns damage skin. Damaged skin cracks, causing leaks and bleeding.)using this game.
